Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Thermodynamics

Morton E. Gurtin mostly deals with Classical mechanics, Constitutive equation, Boundary value problem, Plasticity and Thermodynamics. Morton E. Gurtin studies Continuum mechanics which is a part of Classical mechanics. His Constitutive equation research includes elements of Basis, Laws of thermodynamics, Stefan problem and Mathematical analysis.

His studies deal with areas such as Hardening, Mechanics, Viscoplasticity and Dislocation as well as Plasticity. His Mechanics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Surface elasticity and Surface stress. His Thermodynamics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Differential algebraic equation and Integrating factor.

His most cited work include:

  • A continuum theory of elastic material surfaces (2172 citations)
  • A continuum theory of elastic material surfaces (2172 citations)
  • An introduction to continuum mechanics (1586 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His main research concerns Classical mechanics, Mathematical analysis, Thermodynamics, Mechanics and Constitutive equation. His research in Classical mechanics is mostly focused on Continuum mechanics. Linear system and Uniqueness are among the areas of Mathematical analysis where Morton E. Gurtin concentrates his study.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism and Statistical physics is strongly linked to Complex system. He has researched Mechanics in several fields, including Wave propagation, Longitudinal wave, Mechanical wave and Phase. His research integrates issues of Stefan problem and Curvature in his study of Constitutive equation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Classical mechanics (39.36%)
  • Mathematical analysis (20.92%)
  • Thermodynamics (18.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2016)?

  • Classical mechanics (39.36%)
  • Plasticity (9.22%)
  • Boundary value problem (14.18%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Classical mechanics, Plasticity, Boundary value problem, Mathematical analysis and Constitutive equation. His Classical mechanics research includes themes of Partial differential equation, Finite strain theory, Slip, Isotropy and Mechanics. His work carried out in the field of Plasticity brings together such families of science as Hardening, Burgers vector, Single crystal and Viscoplasticity.

His work in Boundary value problem tackles topics such as Flow which are related to areas like Conservation law, Symmetry group and Symmetry. His Mathematical analysis research incorporates elements of Turbulence and Length scale. The various areas that he examines in his Constitutive equation study include Theoretical physics, Phase, Dissipation inequality, Dissipation and Gibbs–Thomson equation.

Between 2004 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • The Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Continua (726 citations)
  • A theory of strain-gradient plasticity for isotropic, plastically irrotational materials. Part I: Small deformations (292 citations)
  • Thermodynamics applied to gradient theories involving the accumulated plastic strain : The theories of Aifantis and Fleck and Hutchinson and their generalization (176 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Thermodynamics

Morton E. Gurtin mainly focuses on Classical mechanics, Boundary value problem, Plasticity, Viscoplasticity and Isotropy. His Classical mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Flow, Mechanics, Slip and Constitutive equation. His Boundary value problem research integrates issues from Burgers vector and Partial differential equation.

His Plasticity study is associated with Thermodynamics. His work on Continuum mechanics and Crystal plasticity as part of general Thermodynamics research is frequently linked to Energy dependent, bridging the gap between disciplines. The concepts of his Isotropy study are interwoven with issues in Conservative vector field and Dissipative system.
